The Shape of Water (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Shape of Water had me very curious.  It’s not because it’s brought to you by the masterful mind of Guillermo del Toro, but it’s because of our resident MPAA certified reviewer, Sir Aaron Neuwirth.  He gave it an overwhelming 5 doggies out of 5 doggies over here.  Truth be told he doesn’t hand out […]

Nocturnal Animals (Blu-ray Review)

Nocturnal Animals is a flick I knew nothing about prior to seeing theatrically last year.  I had never heard of it before so when the press screening invite arrived in my inbox it was very much a surprise to me.  I saw that Amy Adams was in it and decided to give the trailer a spin. […]

The end of 2016 means an end to another year of great cinema. I had a tough time putting together this final list of films, as there was a strong selection to go through. Having watched over 175 films theatrically this year, it was fun to narrow things down to a final list of ten […]

Top 10 Films Of 2016: A Brandon Peters Story

As always when I do these “Best” lists, I ask two things of you, the reader.  Take the words best or top and replace it with “favorite”.  And importantly, number or ranking doesn’t matter, what is included does.  2016 was an interesting year for me, in that I feel a hair underqualified, but still, this […]

Writer/director/fashion designer Tom Ford has certainly proven he knows how to dress up a scene and his characters. Nocturnal Animals presents multiple scenarios, be it characters at home or in the middle of something out of a Cormac McCarthy novel, which feel lovingly crafted for one to observe every detail, as if reading an intense description from […]

When I first found out they were attempting to go down the road of reinventing, re-branding and rebooting the legendary Superman franchise I just flat out laughed.  Then I found out Watchmen’s Zack Snyder was directing the project.  I have absolutely nothing against the looks and visual style of his films.  I know Snyder has […]
